Trailside Museum, Fort Robinson, NE

Mammoth

This is the first mammoth skeleton that I have ever seen. The head on this giant is plaster; the actual skull and tusks remain locked in combat with another wooley giant on the floor of the museum.

When I visited the display, the staff was still preparing for the "grand opening" later this summer. As I understood the director, the display will represent the actual dig site where the giants were found.
